Modern Jive: Figure Eight


Initial Signal
http://www.modernjive.biz/images/web_gallery/puttingritz2009/images/dawn.jpgFigure of Eight Signal - R arm swept back with thumb at 90 degrees to outstretched fingers and pointing downwards

Description
Man walks forward with R to his L, starting to turn counter-clockwise, placing the lady's R in his R before turning counter-clockwise under his own R arm, stepping back behind with his L (shifting weight there), and bringing the joined R hands down to about eye level (2 beats). Man needs to be careful not to have walked too far forward from the starting location - should be about the original midpoint. Then man steps forward on R and uses his R to turn the lady clockwise while stepping together (2 beats), and then back (2 beats). Ladies footwork is to step straight forward for 2 beats, and then walking turn for four beats to end in the back position.
